Fleet Air Arm Clay Pigeon Shoot 2020

By January 15, 2020March 31st, 2020No Comments

Following the success of last year’s inaugural Fleet Air Arm Charity Shoot in June, the highly enjoyable fundraiser held at the Royal Berkshire Shooting School, is set to become an annual event for the Charity.

Sponsored by Purdey, this year’s Charity Clay Shoot will be held on Tuesday 15 September 2020 and is open to anyone, whether you are experienced or a novice. Team Captains are invited to make up four gun teams for a fabulous day’s shooting in the beautiful Berkshire countryside.

The Royal Berkshire Shooting School is one of the premier shooting schools in the country and the day is an opportunity for teams from the Fleet Air Arm to come together with Charity Ambassadors and Corporate partners for a clay-shoot fundraiser in aid of the Royal Navy’s aviation heritage. A magnificent £25,000 was raised last year with the coveted Top Gun prize won by David Blundell. You can see more of last year’s event here.

The day includes breakfast followed by a morning’s shooting over ten stands before relaxing into the afternoon with a flypast, champagne reception and leisurely summer lunch. “It was a brilliant day!” said Captain Uves Wood, F-35 Deputy Force Commander. “A highly enjoyable team-bonding day in aid of a great cause!” The guest of honour was Olympic Gold Medallist Peter Wilson MBE and prizes were presented by Commodore Nick Tindal.
